In a Bash shell script I'm putting together, I am trying to find this text: /usr/local/freeswitch/log/freeswitch.log and replace it with: /var/log/freeswitch/freeswitch.log in this file: /etc/fail2ban/jail.local
This is what I have tried so far, both of which result in the error: sed: -e expression #1, char 75: unterminated `s' command
sed -i 's~usr/local/freeswitch/log/freeswitch.log~var/log/freeswitch/freeswitch.log' /etc/fail2ban/jail.local
sed -i 's~usr/local/freeswitch/log/freeswitch.log/var/log/freeswitch/freeswitch.log' /etc/fail2ban/jail.local
The structure of a sed substitution command is
s/PATTERN/REPLACEMENT/ (note the delimiter at the end of the command).
You're right, you can change the delimiter to a different character, so if you're going to use
~ you need to put one of those at the end of the command.
